Strawberries and (Almost) Cream

I'm in the middle of my sweet tooth's least favorite time of year- the weeks when I give up desserts for Lent. I've been trying to find non-dessert substitutes that will satisfy my cravings for sweet, and I have to say, I hit the jackpot with my recent strawberries-and-cream-like creation.

I picked up a carton of strawberries that just happened to be perfectly sweet and delicious. To go with them, I mixed plain Greek yogurt with some honey and cinnamon. It turned out to be an amazingly decadent dip, and got even better once some of the strawberry juice got into the mix.

Now I may not choose to eat this in the face of a cupcake, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I'll look forward to making this even once the dessert ban is lifted.

  1. Brilliant! Strawberries and any cream like substance is awesome. Are you allowed to have cream cheese? Because that could be a good option for this situation. Or if you're Giada, perhaps marscapone?
